Located in the heart of Richmond, Va., the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry resides at a bustling intersection of medicine, business, politics and culture. Combining the amenities of a major metropolitan area with the charm and convenience of a moderately sized city, Richmond, the state capital, offers a unique urban backdrop for study, work and play.

Situated at the VCU Medical Center, the School of Dentistry is just blocks away from downtown Richmond’s financial and government center and a short drive from several popular retail districts. Many of our students and faculty reside in nearby historical neighborhoods like Church Hill and the Fan, taking advantage of the James River, a thriving arts scene and plentiful dining options — just a few reasons the city consistently ranks among the best places to live and work in America in several national publications.
